I'm not really into digital scrapbooking. I've used some digital elements, such as titles and journaling, and I've printed out some patterned papers. But I simply love the actual hands-on approach to scrapbooking and card making so much that I could never go totally digital. That's not to say that I haven't done an occasional all-digital layout, though. I did one for a New Year's Challenge back in January, and I did one last night. This layout, created last night, is the first layout that Haley and I have designed together. We used a pre-made design in Photoshop Elements, and we adjusted the colors and photo positioning. Then we added a title and journaling. We had such a great time together that now Haley wants to try one on her own! So this week, why not try something new?

This week's Try It Tuesday challenge is to journal around the perimeter
of your layout. Another option is to journal around individual
photos. This is a great way to fit more photos on a layout. Tip: A
white gel or Souffle pen works great on dark paper. TRY IT!

there! This week's Try It Tuesday Challenge is to make faux
chipboard. It's so easy! Just punch/die cut a shape or letter out of
cardstock 3 or 4 times. Use the heaviest cardstock your punch/die cut
machine will take. Glue the shapes together, and you will have a
"chipboard" accent or letter. For these circles, I stamped the
images with Palette Noir Black ink and colored the images with
watercolor pencils. Then I punched them out with my circle punch.
After that, I punched circles out of heavy cardstock and glued 2 of
these under the circle images. You can't tell the difference, even in
real life! TRY IT!
